Thread Name: Songs and Tunes for Autoharp?
Subject: RE: Songs and Tunes for Autoharp?
The elderly man playing amnplified autoharp in Bracknell shopping centre two Saturdays ago should have read this thread: it was awful whiny muzakky stuff that I couldn't recognise. Sorely tempted to unplug him but the amp was on batteries! Peggy Seeger he wasn't!(For the benefit of non-locals Bracknell is a 1960s "New Town" of the type that must have inspired Pete Seeger's "Little Boxes", and is full of "interesting" office blocks of computer companies). An earlier week there was someone on amplified concert harpplaying light classics. I prefer the usual guitar or sax buskers!
